Happy Hump Day all!
Being in the 30 Plus Style collaborative has definitely stretching the boundaries of my style. Back in the Spring it was a tutu and now a dress over pants. Ive seen pictures of this trend but mostly on the runway and on street style stars. While it looked good on them, I became concerned that I wouldnt work on me and I would end up looking like a bag lady. So I took to my beloved Pinterest to find inspiration and to find how to wear the trend stylishly. What I got from the pins is that slim or skinny leg pants and A line dresses seem to be the best combo when venturing into this look. After some serious closet digging I decided to pair an old dress over straight leg jeans. I added heels to lengthen my legs and balance out the proportions. My ripped jeans (which I cannot stop wearing!) added to the bohemian vibe of the dress. Honestly I don’t know if Ill wear this trend again but it was fun to try something new and a little scary!
So what do you think? Would you wear a dress over pants?
Please check out the other lovely ladies of 30 Plus Style and our guest blogger Els from XL Fashion File to see how they tackled the challenge!
